New Year. Not a new Decade, I expect better from Space.com. The first year was 1 CE. 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10, a decade of 10 years. Unless you can show which "Decade" only has 9 years in it, the next Decade starts on 2021. I would have thought you would remember from the 1999-2000-2001 fiasco for the end of the 20th century and start of the 21st century in 2001.

Thank you! I am so tired of explaining when a decade/milenium begins and ends. The number of people and web sites that are wrong is enormous. There is no way to send a message to all of them, correcting their information. Kudos!
